Tributes pour in for Irish lawyer and TikTok sensation Richard Grogan – who has sadly passed away

Tributes are pouring in for Irish lawyer and TikTok sensation Richard Grogan, who has sadly passed away.

The employment law specialist was well-known amongst Irish social media users for his catchphrase “That’s the law, and that’s a fact.”

In a tweet posted on Wednesday morning, the Law Society of Ireland wrote: “The Law Society is deeply saddened to learn of Council member Richard Grogan’s passing.”

“Richard was a tireless advocate, both in proceedings and in the public arena,” the tweet continued. “We will miss his energy, humour, and deep commitment to the profession.”

“Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time. Ar dheis de go raibh a h-anam dilis.”

The TikTok sensation had garnered almost 300K followers, and 2.2 million likes on the social media app.
